Last six days I was blessed by lovely trip. I met my sangha friends - Kaspa, Fiona, and Caroline in Malvern, Adrian and Richard in Birmingham, and Hussam in mid - Wales, and joined them with their regular local sangha practice meetings. I also met some of their friends, family members, and other buddhist practicioners. I felt very much at home in each place. It was moving to join each of them in their lives, but also talk about things which connect us together.
Many inspiring and creative sharings ......
talking about writing books, house decorating with Fiona;
about creating a website, on-line courses, running a centre with Kaspa;
about dancing, massage, relationships, working in a hospice with Caroline;
about the psychotherapy studies with Adrian;
about the buddhist practice with Richard;
about writing songs, gardening, hills, buddhism with Hussam;
about art, architecture, Thailand, spirituality with Petra;
about the experience of meditation walking retreat, about working on the lighthouse, about India, about comedians, about Zen, about making the jewelry, about moving, about well-blessing, about....... with many others, and even about the football with Hussam's son Luka.
People were saying that it was good that I have done some practice with them together, and I want to say I felt blessed that I have done practice with them. Hard to put these things into words. To feel lost without faith, to feel the presence of faith is very unpredictable.
So thanks to all of you who welcomed me so warmly, and hope to see you soon in future.
